Miners of Moria – Kinship Uniform 1

A few posts ago I mentioned that I had been given the task of creating a few outfits for my kinship, Miners of Moria, to wear. This is the first idea I wanted to share with you guys, and the first of about 3-4. The cloak immediately made me think of my kin, and although not exactly the same as the Doors of Durin and the likeness more like the White Tree of Minas Tirith, for me the light blue details stood out and made this a very unique cloak for us to be wearing.

The problem I faced creating this outfit was the light blue details on the cloak were very difficult to match anything that could be crafted or bought from a vendor by anyone at any level, as I wanted to completely disregard all cosmetic items acquired via a quest. I also only wanted the ‘main’ part of this armour that people would wear is the cloak, chest piece and leggings. I didn’t want us all looking the same to the extent a lover of heavy armour wouldn’t appreciate it. Thus, the Helm, Shoulders, Gloves and Boots were player’s choice and could be light armour slippers for a Rune-Keeper feel or heavy plated Orthanc boots to feel that protection charging into battle first with a shield and sword.

A bonus I believe is that in Black, this outfit would look fantastic atop Orthanc battling Saruman or combined and mixed with some of the very black and white Orthanc pieces. Below I have added a burgundy dye and tried the look on my little hobbit.

Chest: Rock-Climber’s Armour [Crafted T6 – Tailor] ~Black~

Legs: Rock-Climber’s Leggings [Crafted T6 – Tailor] ~Black~

Personalized items left to the choice of the player are the Helm, Gloves, Shoulders and Boots. In this outfit I liked the light blue on the Dar Narbugud Armour from my Hunter and used these, along with some shoulder-guards from the epic book quest.

When I first saw the bottom/skirt to this outfit, I knew right away what to create and I absolutely adore it, one of my favourites after over a year of putting together cosmetic outfits for fun, and it suited my Rune-Keeper perfectly and she fit in well with the local folk while on her quests in Enedwaith and Dunland. All pieces are listed below.

Note: The feet cosmetic really doesn’t matter, which is why I didn’t try very hard to get the feet in the picture. It can be anything since the skirt covers up most of it anyway and boots clip out of the skirt so try to go for something smaller. The Helm can also be anyone from the hunter sets as some require different combinations of tokens, just make sure you can dye it as I couldn’t at one point and only t2 could be dyed, think they updated it though since – don’t quote me on that, but I was suddenly able to dye mine again recently.
